OPENING THE DOORS TO HIGHER EDUCATION

The Community Foundation of Greater New Britain understands that we all benefit from an educated workforce, and our Board of Directors, Scholarship Committee and staff are committed to the continued growth of scholarship funds that help local students pursue their educational goals.

The majority of the nearly 50 scholarships we manage are awarded to graduating seniors of local public high schools in the Foundation’s coverage area, which includes Berlin, New Britain, Plainville and Southington. A small number are awarded to graduating seniors from Farmington, Newington and Wethersfield.

Most of these scholarships are administered through the guidance departments of public high schools in Berlin, New Britain, Plainville and Southington, as well as Farmington and Newington. If you attend a public high school in one of these communities, please check directly with your individual guidance department about scholarship opportunities.
